In this video from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, host Chris Hill and Motley Fool analysts Jason Moser and David Hanson take a deep Foolish dive into the biggest stories from the market today.

Over Black Friday weekend, Target was hit by a massive information breach, with as many as 40 million credit and debit card accounts possibly having been affected. Customers who shopped at a brick-and-mortar Target location between November 27 and December 15 who paid with a credit or debit card are the ones at risk. In the lead story on today's Investor Beat, Jason and David talk about whether Target released this information to the public as soon as it was available to them, and how they think it could impact shareholders.

Also, while Darden Restaurants sold off today on earnings news, and also announced it would be spinning off its Red Lobster business as the weakest performer among the restaurants under the Darden umbrella, Chipotle is still full steam ahead and has announced that it will be getting into the pizza business. Its first Pizzeria Locale will open in Denver. Will this be a winning move for Chipotle, and are "fast-casual" restaurants like Chipotle destined to drive traditional casual-dining companies like Darden Restaurants out of business? Our analysts discuss the future of Chipotle, Darden, and the restaurant industry as a whole.
